Commonness and Derivative Work in Ašʿarite Literature: A Comparison of Ḍiyāʾ al-Dīn al- Makkī’s Nihāyat al-marām and Abū al-Qāsim al-Anṣārī’s al-Ġunya fī al-kalām

AbstractThis article compares two extensive kalām works from the first half of the 6th/12th century: al-Ġunya fī al-kalām by the chief authority of Ašʿarism in Nīsābūr, Abū al-Qāsim al-Anṣārī, and Nihāyat al-marām by his student Ḍiyāʾ al-Dīn al-Makkī. The two works were recently published almost simultaneously—the Ġunya in a critical edition and the Nihāya as facsimile of the autograph manuscript, a codex completed in Rayy in 550/1155. Ayman Shihadeh, the editor of the Nihāya, already pointed out that al-Makkī’s work is based closely on his teacher’s Ġunya. The aim of this article is to study the precise extent of this textual dependency. It shows that more than the half of the Nihāya consists of literal or almost literal quotations from the Ġunya. Over long passages, the Nihāya may therefore be considered as al-Makkī’s recompilation of textual material from his teacher’s theological summa rather than an independent work.
